Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was arrested in Haryana’s Hisar district on Sunday over his casteist remarks against leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Hansi Nagar police station has registered a case against Singh. However, he was immediately granted bail and released on the orders of the High Court.
